Songs from Colossians

This is the fifty-first entry in a series on Songs from the Books of the Bible.

Southern Gospel songs focus on many of the highest themes known to mankind—songs of Salvation, the Cross, the Resurrection, and eternity. But critics claim that they focus on these themes to the exclusion of other Biblical themes which are appropriate and perhaps necessary to address in song.

For how many chapters in Colossians can we find Southern Gospel songs addressing their themes?

  • Colossians 1:5: When I Think About Heaven (McKameys)
  • Colossians 1:9-14: I Keep Praying (McKameys)
  • Colossians 1:28: Christ In Me (Couriers)
  • Colossians 2:14: Nail it to the Cross (Kitsons, Whisnants)
  • Colossians 2:14: Nailing My Sins to His Cross (Downings, Speers)
  • Colossians 2:14: Let The Hammer Ring (Old Time Gospel Hour Trio)
  • Colossians 3:1: Walking Down Here, Thinking Up There (Cathedrals)
  • Colossians 3:1-3: I’ve Made Up My Mind (McKameys)
  • Colossians 3:2: God Doesn’t Think Like Me (McKameys)
  • Colossians 3:3: Hid in Christ (Browns, Greenes)
  • Colossians 3:11: You Are My All in All (Gaither Vocal Band)
  • Colossians 3:16: A Sermon in Song (McKameys)
